It is unlikely anyone you speak with who is married will argue with the concept that marriage is hard work.  For scores of couples the hard work is worth it.  So why do some couples divorce and others remain married?

For most divorcing couples, the marriage disintegrates slowly over time.  The most common reasons given for a breakdown of a marriage are as follows:

  1. Lack of commitment
  2. Unrealistic expectations
  3. Feelings of one spouse of a lack of equality
  4. Stress about money
  5. Communication breakdown.

However, when questioned about what the “breaking point” is for most couples these three reasons were at the top of the list:

  1. Infidelity
  2. Substance Abuse
  3. Domestic Violence

In New Jersey, although there are many grounds for divorce, most divorcing couples use the grounds Irreconcilable Differences which encompass all of the above.
